Boland College staff honoured at Staff Excellence Awards

At Boland College, we believe that you give honour where honour is due. Therefore, for the second year now, we have proudly hosted our Staff Excellence and Long Service Awards.

Staff Excellence Award recipients are pictured above.

In order to qualify for these awards, staff members must be nominated by their peers and a written motivation must also accompany the nomination. An external panel is then tasked with the mission of judging each nomination and determining the winner in each category.

Categories vary from support staff to management, a lifetime achievement award, project of the year and academic staff being honoured. This prestigious event is hosted by the Human Resource Department in collaboration with the Marketing and Corporate Communication Department.

This year’s function was held at the Boland College Head Office in Stellenbosch, with special guest Professor Magda Fourie-Malherbe from Stellenbosch University, who acted as external adjudicator for the awards.
